I have a windows 7 64 bit machine that I upgraded from Windows XP. I upgraded about a year ago, no problem. I got an iPhone (love it) and was synching to my windows machine for months, no problems. Not sure what the trigger was (think it was an iTunes SW update) but I started getting error messages and the phone would no longer synch.
I uninstalled itunes, then when I tried to reinstall I got different errors. I googled the error message and related ones, and tried the following:
- I ran the fix for Windows Update. It said it resovled problems, but it is still behaving strange. It shows successful updates, but when I ask it to check for new updates, it just keeps looking and never completes. In the background, it appears to be actually making updates which it shows as successfully installed.
- I updated the C++ redistributable package and the .NET package from the MSFT website.
- I've uninstalled all the components of Apple several times, tired the trick of deleting the previously downloaded components and updated manually, etc.
Here is the first message I get when I try to install Itunes64Setup.
An error occurred during the installation of assembly "Microsoft VC80.CRT,type="win32",version = "8.0.50727.6195".publick key token = 1fc8b3b9ale18e3b.processor architecture = "x86". Please refer to help and support for more information. HResult:0x8007002
Appreciate any help or guidance - hoping to avoid having to reinstall Windows again.
